Notes/Commercial Description:
A West Coast IPA that features Amarillo and Simcoe hops "in harmony," giving a light, floral aroma. Duet is nicely bitter with the perfect amount of malt concealed behind the hoppy goodness. Immensely drinkable, amazingly light on its feet.

Very good IPA that falls just short of being amazing. Great representation of the style.

Light herbs and floral hops on the nose I sense a bit of chives, tangerines, caramel, grapefruit, watermelon and bitter lemon rinds. The front is floral with an herbaceous hops. The middle palate is caramel before it ends with a grapefruit bitterness and resiny pine. The feel is almost sessionable as it holds almost no astringency.
